弟子藥恩問說
有沒有一句話可以指導修行到成佛
回示
體會無常

了解無常 易於放下執著
感受無常 轉為精進修行
體會無常 可能了悟無我

     無執無我又精進
     自然清明開闊
     易於趨入本淨

無常不僅是入佛之門,亦是修佛之明燈,更是成佛之體驗。

Teaching in One Phrase

 

Yutang Lin

 

 

Disciple Yao En (Medicine Guru Buddha's Grace) asked
Is there a phrase that can guide one on the path till full enlightenment
Replied
Realizing impermanence

Comprehending impermanence
        Easier to let go of grasping
Feeling impermanence
        One turned to practice Dharma diligently
Realizing impermanence
It is possible to comprehend selflessness

        Free from grasping
        Free from self-centeredness
        And practicing Dharma diligently
        Mind naturally becomes clear and open
        And hence readily merging into original purity

Impermanence is not only the entrance to the Buddha path
But also a bright lamp shinning upon the practice path
And even more so a realization of full enlightenment

 

Note:
The Dharma name Yao En was given because the disciple asked for refuge right after a fire puja to Medicine Guru Buddha had been performed.
